Kilgore gets probation for perjury
Placeholder Image

A woman who lied for her husband while he was trespassing on private property was granted probation.
The woman, Cheryl Warren Kilgore, 32, entered guilty pleas before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to the charge of perjury and aggravated criminal trespass. She was granted an 11-month, 29-day judicial diversion meaning she can have her criminal record erased once she completes her year on probation. She will also have to complete 24 hours public service work and was warned to stay off the property where she and her husband were trespassing.
Her husband, Samuel Kilgore, 34, entered a guilty plea to the charge of aggravated criminal trespass and was released on time served.
Mrs. Kilgore was approached by sheriff’s deputy Steve McMillen as she walked to a blue truck that was parked on the side of Viola Road. He had been called there concerning trespassers on private property.
The officer asked her what was going on and if she was alone. The woman repeatedly claimed she was alone and no one was with her. However, sheriff’s Sgt. Jason Walker happened to look over the fence and saw movement.
“Mr. Kilgore was squatting in the grass,” McMillen said, noting it was learned they were there to get some items out of a storage shed.
A call revealed neither of the suspects were to be on the property and they had lied to deputies on both accounts.
